Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy – Encounter Program

Encountering anthroposophy can be challenging.

Envigorate your experience by exploring it with others.

This program meets every Saturday throughout the school year and gives you an in-depth experience through lectures, discussions, and artistic activities. The Encounter program encourages you to grow in knowledge and understanding with others as you work with a well-qualified and diverse faculty.

You will:

  • Explore a systematic path through the basic ideas of anthroposophy.
  • Learn through artistic activities: eurythmy, painting, clay, and drawing.
  • Enjoy the satisfaction of meeting fellow students and exploring new ideas with them.
  • Study the rhythms and meaning in your own biography and destiny.
  • See anthroposophy in action at a Waldorf school and a biodynamic farm.
  • Develop a sense for the spiritual reality that points to meaning and purpose in our complex world.

Encounter Course Locations, Dates and Times for 2023-24

This year the RSCC Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy Encounter program is being offered in two locations: Thornhill and Guelph. In the past we have also offered this progogram in  Halton, but at this point we don’t know whether a Halton program will be offered this year or not. It will depend on whether there are enough local students and on the initiative of local group leaders.
